We officially partnered with Abol Bridge in 2015 with great success offering our guests the only rafting basecamp on the Penobscot River. Direct trail access to  Baxter State Park makes this venue all the more alluring with more to do and see.

With a successful 2015 rafting season behind us and feedback from our guests our hosts are updating the facilities and campgrounds to include bunk houses a grand meeting pavilion and other recreational amenities.

Spend a day of rafting and return to enjoy the evenings views from your camp chair. Tie on a fly to a rising trout and enjoy the spectacular sunsets over the mountain. Its an experience you’ll talk about and return to for many years!
